I would like to recommend a film called "Jupiter's Wife," which I believe is about to be released on DVD. It is the story of an odd (possibly Schizophrenic), homeless woman who lives in NY's Central Park with a pack of dogs. She is very charming and smart, but speaks almost entirely in metaphors -- claiming, among other things, to be Jupiter's wife. The film maker who made this documentary got completely captivated by her and in the process of researching her history made some very surprising discoveries about her life and her past. It is an amazing piece of work and an interesting look at the complex and often tragic influences on the human psyche.
I recently read a review of a documentary made about some famous skateboarder who was convicted of the murder of his girl friend. I cannot remember the title of this film. Does anyone here know it?
